Australian off-spinner: victim of drink-spiking
Jason Krejza, the Australian off-spinner, in line for a test debut in the first test match against India in Bangalore, told media that he had been a victim of a drink-spiking incident that resulted positive in a dope test two years ago.
JASON KREJZA, the Australian off-spinner, in line for a test debut in the first test match against India in Bangalore, told media that he had been a victim of a drink-spiking incident that resulted positive, in a dope test two years ago. Then he was playing for New South Wales (NSW). Krejza admitted that his drink was spiked at a nightclub three days before a match, featuring an in-competition dope test.

According to an Australian daily, the off-spinner informed NSW officials instantly, who conducted an in-house urine test. The test found traces of cocaine. After that, two tests were conducted in the next fortnight, which turned out to be negative.

Krejza told that he was shocked over the whole incident. The NSW and Cricket Australia officials also accepted Krejza’s version of events. Michael Brown, the acting CA chief executive told that the positive test would not be counted against Krejza. Moreover, Brown admitted that there were around 4,000 reported cases of drink-spiking last year. Even the names of some high-profile athletes and celebrities were also in the list.

There was one more report of a drunk-driving incident last year in Tasmania against this 25-year-old off-spinner. Referring the time as the ’pivotal moment’ of his career, Krejza decided to keep himself away for the rest of the season.
